vibe: 3 | quality: 3.25 | service: 2.75 | selection: 3.5 | food: 3.5

Appearance/Vibe - It's a standard slightly darkened wooden American bar style. Looks like every other place. 1 part Hooters 1 part El Chico 1 part Applebees. Nothing special. 3

Quality - They had a decent selection 30+ of tap beers mostly domestic micros. Strong showings from CO, TN, and Pacific NW. 3.25

Service - Nothing outstanding. It's a family restaurant that has a larger than average beer selection. Waitress was polite but not particularly beer knowledgeable 2.75

Selection - 30+ on tap. Plenty of seasonals and one-shots. Another 40+ bottles. Prices were $5-10

Food - Fake cajun dishes. Decent flavor, no specific coordination between beer styles and food pairings. Not bad but not outstanding.

Stopped here on the way back from Cool Springs Galleria on the Saturday after Thanksgiving.

The place is styled like a mix between a Logan's Roadhouse and a hunting lodge. Doesn't really fit the mold, but not ridiculous or offputting. There were a lot of TVs on sports networks.

Service was subpar. Getting anything took awhile and service was unfriendly when I did get attention.

Beer selection is outstanding. Over seventy craft and macro taps when I was there. Quantity definitely leans toward Southern crafts. You can find something you like here.

Food is standard pub fare - mostly stuff on the bun, stuff with fries and the like. I had a bacon burger of some type and it was $7.99. Reasonable and as good as a Fuddrucker's or similar chain, but not outstanding.

This is a good place if you're thirsty and want an average meal or at the mall and want a brew and something better than mall food, but it doesn't real fill any sort of niche. I felt unwelcome with the substandard service, even though I'm a native Southerner and didn't stick out even though I'm not local. A standard gastropub with a better than average beer selection.

I was pleasantly surprised to find this Brewhouse located at Cool Springs Mall. Actually it is outside the mall on the south end of the south parking lot. The building used to be a Texas Roadhouse restaurant but the inside has been redone as a major sports bar. There were plenty of large screen TV everywhere, plus pool tables, steel tip darts and shuffle board. It can get crowed especially when one of the Nashville teams are playing.

Now for the beer. I personally saw over 60 beers on tap and another 67 on bottles not counting the cans used for decorations.
I enjoyed a draft Arrogant Bastard (one of several brews on tap from the Stone Brewery) which I can not get where I live in Northern Alabama.

The food menu is geared toward a Mexican-southwertern theme. I tried the jalapeno burger which was excellent with my cold Bastard.

By the way, this is a no smoking bar and very family orientated. I would recommend this place for good beer, good food and a sports atmosphere without all the hassle go actually being in Nashville.
